Geographic Limitations

The Foundation welcomes grant requests from otherwise eligible tax-exempt organizations under Internal Revenue Code Sections 501(c)(3) and Section 509(a) which benefit the Winter Park, Florida and Ashland, Ohio areas.  Geographical area can encompass a larger area than those cities, but must include one.

General Purposes

Based on the lifetime interests of the Miller family, the Elinor and T. W. Miller, Jr. Foundation shows special consideration to projects focused on education, health care, athleticism, and spiritual health and community engagement.

As a way of engaging the community-at-large and helping organizations increase donors, many of our grants are given as a “dollar for dollar” match.  In all cases we want to see our support helping your organization attain a higher level of service to t he community they serve.


In case a grant request is denied, reapplication on the same grant request ordinarily will not be considered. However, unless the organization is not qualified for support, denial of a grant request is without prejudice to your submitting other requests on different projects or on other subjects.

Submission of Requests

The Foundation has no submission deadline dates and grant requests are received at any time. All request materials received become property of the Foundation and will not be returned to sender.
